Passengers should take out appropriate travel insurance, check and understand the terms and conditions of the booking with the insurance provider, the airline and holiday operator.
The travel insurance should be in place from the time the booking is made and cover any car parking arrangements in the event of cancellation.
- The CAA advice is to consider what air travel insurance you need before booking flights and holidays.
The EHIC (formerly E111) is not an alternative to travel insurance. It will enable access free or reduced-cost emergency treatment if travelling in Europe, but not Turkey, and usually only applies if you are treated in a public or state hospital. If ill or injured the European Health Insurance Card will not cover the costs to get you home and may not cover all medical costs, e.g. outpatient costs, prescriptions and medication.
